Working with difficult people can be a very stressful situation. It can make your working life a less than rewarding experience. We’ve had many questions sent in by members dealing with a stressful person at work. We’ve had other questions sent by members on dealing with a person outside of work who is upsetting them.
THE SITUATION FOR ANDREW WITH A PARTICULAR WORKMATE
Here is a question sent in by Andrew (name changed for privacy). “I’m quite sensitive and have friends who pick on me sometimes. I feel they do so because I usually don’t answer back. I have one friend who constantly makes reference to my receding hairline, and when he does so I turn bright red and go quiet. How do I handle this person without discussing the subject? (which I am a little sensitive on!)”.
CAN YOU RELATE TO THIS AT ALL?
Thanks Andrew for sharing your situation with us. Can you relate to Andrew’s position? Do you know of others who would be experiencing similar situations? Before making suggestions for Andrew on how to handle this situation we’d really like to hear from you.
